Monday 8 Feb am

How students really learn!

This practical session will explore the latest classroom research on student learning and give activities based on ideas from NLP on how teachers can make the most of their classes to facilitate student acquisition.

Monday 8 Feb pm

The teacher and sensory acuity… Learning to observe…

A lot of people have become very interested in facial expressions, non-verbal language and other paralinguistic features, after watching “Lie to me”, the American television series that premiered on the Fox network. In the show, Dr. Cal Lightman and his colleagues in The Lightman Group accept assignments from third parties (commonly local and federal law enforcement), and assist in investigations, reaching the truth through applied psychology: interpreting microexpressions, through the Facial Action Coding System, and body language.

In this workshop we will see how to use that information in a very practical way to improve communication with our students and facilitate their learning.

Tuesday 9 Feb am

The Art of the Question

Can we polish our question-making as teachers to elicit better learning? Can we help our students find questions which lead to more discovery and reflection. Through quizzes, games and other activities we will practise the skill of finding the right question.

Tuesday 9 Feb pm

Time Management…

Self- Management?

In this session we will see how self-management is essential to manage time effectively and efficiently. We will delve into topics such as delegation, trust, self-motivation and motivation of others.

We will reflect on how to set priorities, how to schedule and have goals. By becoming aware of how we use our time as a resource in organising, prioritising, and succeeding in our jobs as teachers, coordinators or heads of staff, we will learn how to “save” our energy to be active and vibrant when we get home after a long day at work.

Apart from the moments of deep reflection you will be getting very practical ideas to start using as soon as you finish the workshop.

Wednesday 10 Feb am

A 2010 map of the English speaking world

In these days of information overload and fast-changing technology, what can we expect our students to learn and know about the world of English language and culture? This session will combine general knowledge and language styles and registers to help us identity what is essential to know and what is purely interesting and of lesser importance for the classroom as we enter the second decade of the new millenium.

Wednesday 10 Feb pm

Literature, creativity, learning and fun

In this presentation we will be working with the theory of creativity, plus specific ideas to put into practice in the classroom. Assuming creativity can be learnt, we will see ways to help both teachers and students to become aware of the creative process and its application to language teaching and learning. We will also be reading poems by Benjamin Zephaniah and we will take delight in the production of Haikus.

Thursday 11 Feb am

Emotions and language learning

Damasio (1999) states that “There is nothing distinctively about human emotions since it is clear that so many nonhuman creatures have emotions in abundance; and yet there is something quite distinctive about the way in which emotions have become connected to the complex ideas, values, principles, and judgements that only humans can have ”.

In this workshop we will see how from a neuropsychological perspective, emotions are very important: they exist in our brain and are biological, apart from elaborated by culture.

We will also discuss the implications for English language teaching and learning and we will work with some very powerful ideas to tap into optimal emotional states to learn a language.

Thursday 11 Feb pm

Being fully present

Apart from NLP, there are a large number of complementary therapies and energy techniques being taught in the world today. Many of them are very old knowledge that has been rediscovered.

How are they relevant to the classroom? Can teachers integrate aspects of them into their work? This session will consider a variety of these techniques and give a special introduction to that of EMF (Electromagnetic field) Balancing which helps people to become fully present in their daily activities.


Each workshop lasts three hours. AM: 9.00 - 12.00 PM: 14.00 - 17.00.
